Aces Trump Hoyas in Baseball at Rollins College

March 9, 2003

Box Score

WINTER PARK, Fla.  ? A three run ninth inning helped sink Georgetown (1-4) Sunday afternoon in baseball action as the Evansville Aces (4-5) doubled up the Hoyas 10-5 at Rollins College. 

Evansville logged two three-run innings, driving in a trio in the second and ninth to defeat Georgetown in a game added to the Hoya schedule during the Rollins College Baseball Week.  Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) drove in two runs with his second homer of the season, going 1-for-4 with a walk.  Travis Danysh (San Antonio, Texas/Alamo Heights) pitched five and two-thirds innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs.

Evansville batted first, scoring a run and then retiring the first three Hoyas.  The Aces then racked up three runs in the second before Danysh entered the game in relief and retired the first batter he faced with runners on the corners and two outs.  Spurred by the defensive stand, Michael Lombardi (Brookhaven Hamlet, N.Y./St. Anthony?s) led off the second with a single and Cleary homered to make it 4-2 Evansville.  Ron Cano (El Segundo, Calif./El Segundo) and Jim Supple (Summit, N.J./St. Peter?s Prep) followed the blast with a single apiece before the Aces recorded their first out, catching Cano at third on a double-steal.  A groundout advanced Supple to third and the next batter, Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) drew the first of his game-high three walks.  Jones promptly stole second and the Hoyas leader in base on balls, Parker Brooks (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman), walked for the seventh time in five games to load the bases.  Unfortunately for GU, Aces pitcher Michael Greenhouse bore down and recorded the third out to squeak Evansville out of the inning.

Georgetown allowed three runs over the next four innings to fall behind 7-2 in the bottom of the sixth.  Matt Carullo (Oakton, Va./Paul VI) doubled in Brooks and Lombardi drove a sacrifice fly to center to score Carullo, cutting the deficit to 7-4.  Danysh pitched a scoreless seventh before surrendering the ball to Patrick Salvitti with the bases loaded and only one out in the eighth.  Salvitti, who had struggled of late allowing five runs in his last two appearances, stepped in and promptly threw a double play ball to retire the side. 

Georgetown failed to score in the eighth and the Aces widened the margin with three runs in the ninth to make the score 10-4.  The Hoyas were able to muster one run off two hits in the final at bats to make it a 10-5 final.

The Hoyas resume Baseball Week play against Rollins College at 11 a.m. and Evansville at 1 p.m. on Monday March 10.
